ABSTRACT

In this report the project for the production and irradiation of two LEU fuel elements containing 4.8 g.cm-3U is presented. The test irradiation will be performed at the High Flux Reactor (Petten, the Netherlands) and concerns the qualification of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (Dounreay, UK) as a reliable manufacturer of Material Test Reactor silicide fuel elements.

Apart from a technical description, safety related aspects, quality control and pre-irradiation characterisation, also the irradiation policy and a summary of the subsequent post-irradiation examination programme are provided.
